Topic: Words that end in G-R-Y

ClassBrain Question:

I was told there are three words in the English language that end in "gry" (angry, hungry) what is the third word?
Thank you,

ClassBrain Response:

A riddle is a misleading, or puzzling question posed as a problem to be solved or guessed. This question is a riddle.

This riddle has been around for over 20 years! The reason why it continues to trick people, is because it is usually told or written wrong, thereby creating a puzzle with no answer.

The correct form of this riddle is:

“Think of words ending in -gry. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses everyday. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.”

Look familiar? The first two sentences have absolutely nothing to do with the riddle. They are there just to trick you.

So ‘what is the third word?’

The third word is actually “language” if you answer this question correctly.

“There are only three words in the English language.”

Get it? Three words? THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. Last word language?

Language is definitely something we use everyday. So there's your answer!

There are only two stand-alone words in the English language that end in -gry: angry and hungry.

To unlock riddles, focus on the words used. Read Carefully!

Here’s another riddle for you to try on your friends:

“Name this famous rock group who consists of four members. All four members are dead; one of them was murdered.”

The answer is: Mt. Rushmore!
